NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his breakdown of the Seahawks home victory over the 49ers. I never like it when the officiating gets in the way of a big rivalry game like this. While the Seahawks got a TD instead of a chip shot FG thanks to that bad call I still don’t think that call changed the game’s outcome. The 49ers never scored again in multiple attempts after that play.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives you his takeaways for the Seahawks loss to the Chiefs. This kind of let down by the defense against the run really illustrates how badly it hurts them to have both their starting middle linebacker, Bobby Wagner, and their starting defensive tackle, Brandon Mebane, out at the same time. The only good news here is that Wagner should be back soon.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brian Scott weighs in with his post-game thoughts on a Game 3 Hawks win over the Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. Beast Mode was in full effect during this game, and a Russell Wilson drive won the game in overtime. Kam Chancellor was also impressive, but there were certainly things not to like as well.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger breaks down how the Hawks must pay their dues now that they’ve won the Super Bowl. Being champions means that players will command higher salaries, and players will leave in NFL free agency. Golden Tate, Red Bryant, Chris Clemons, Chris Maragos and Clinton McDonald are prime examples.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks Blogger Brian Scott discusses the question marks surrounding the team entering the 2014 NFL Playoffs. Despite an improvement from Breno Giacomini when it comes to penalties, but Russell Okung and the rest of Pete Carroll’s team need to be more disciplined. Consistency is also crucial when it comes to Marshawn Lynch, Russell Wilson and the rest of the offense.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks’ blogger Brett Bivens once again brings you Monday Morning Quarterback! Breaking down yesterday’s Vikings vs. Hawks game. Brett points out it was more than fun to finally see Percy Harvin take the field for Seattle. Harvin returned that kick 58-yards which put the Seahawks in position to attack the field on offense, even with such little time remaining. Also Seeing Russell Okung, Breno Giacomini and Harvin on the field Sunday was a wonderful sight.
NWSB Insider and Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens brings us a good piece on the Seattle Seahawks today. WR Doug Baldwin is under the spotlight. In the spring of 2011 Seattle offered Doug a $17,500 signing bonus, and he took it. What a steal for the Seahawks, not only was he the 41st ranked receiver by the end of the season, he also led Seattle in receiving yards. He’s not extremely fast, he is extremely short, but he’s all guts.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Brett Bivens is back to weigh in with his thoughts on the 2012 Seahawks practice squad additions added today by the team.

What do you think? Weigh in.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks writer Jordin Ereth breaks down the Seahawks wide receiver position. In Al Pacino’s words, “Players are living and dying for that one inch!” Sidney Rice is lying back in his red jersey enjoying margaritas on the sideline. Doug Baldwin was the Seahawks leading receiver last season. Unlike Terrell Owens when Braylon Edwards came in Jordin was convinced he would make the team.

Defensive backs Ron Parker and Jeron Johnson didn’t practice today. Tight End Zach Miller didn’t practice today either, but he’s OK.
